PS4 games are all £50 and upward, just like the Xbox One
With Steam working so well, some optimists figured that with the next-gen consoles, there would be a load of cheap downloadable games we could get our hands on. However, Sony are behind the PS4 and they don't like value-for-money.
Prices have been announced for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and the cheapest games are £50. If you're a teenager, get a part-time job now or you'll be playing nothing 'til the New Year.
FIFA 14, Battlefield 4, Assassin's Creed 4 and Call of Duty: Ghosts are all going for £55 on PSN (Sony's online marketplace), which are exactly the same price as the games on Xbox Live. Even PS4 exclusives - Knack and Killzone - are only £2 cheaper at £53.
Oddly, physical copies of games are going cheaper (around the £46 mark), which is strange seeing as there's a manual, cover, box and Blu Ray disc. One thing that might be bringing the price down is that you can't play games directly off the disc, instead, you have to install them, thereby making the packaging a big waste of everyone's time.
"As PS4 and PSN have not yet officially launched in this region, nothing on the PSN is final, including pricing on the store," Sony said. "You will continue to see some prices adjusted over the next few days in preparation for launch on Friday."
For bargains, it will definitely be worth waiting for 2014 to roll in because, as it stands, you'll either be forking out loads of money or getting bored of the scant games available.
